The study tested the applicability of portions of the Porter and Lawler model in a cognitive training environment and to examine the relationships among some behavioral variables in Air Force Undergraduate Pilot Training. The variables analyzed were the Maslow need hierarchy, effort, abilities, role perceptions, performance, satisfaction and the propensity to leave the organization. The statistical procedures employed were multivariate regression analysis with binary variables using backward F tests, Student t tests, correlation analysis, two way analysis of variance, the Fisher r to Z transformation and the non parametric chi squared goodness of fit test. The findings of the research support the Porter and Lawler model at the component level, but do not support the use of the Porter and Lawler model in a cognitive training environment to explain performance.
